    Great location

    Location in El Chalten is perfect as you are very close to all the trail starts (very welcome at the end of a long hike!). The Rooms were all big so it was nice to have a lot of space to relax and unpack. Customer service in the hotel was amazing from start to finish. They provided all the information needed for rookie hikers and made us feel very welcome. The spa was great, wished we had used it more! Only negative was that our room was above the restaurant and and we could hear the music from the restaurant very early in the morning when breakfast was first being served. As soon as we mentioned it though, they were more than happy to relocate us.

    Excellent, for El Chalten. Some minor room for improvement, but overall an excellent experience. After seeing other options available in town, this may be one of the top two places to stay there. Plus: room size, cleanliness, friendly staff, quality of bed, restaurant (we had both feee breakfast and pay-for dinner) Maybe slight room for improvement: Mixing of Hot/Cold temperature in shower head mix (not a big deal, but could improve) Needs improvement: wifi signal in bedroom (although it was fine downstairs in bar/restaurant) We didn’t try the spa

    Wonderful stay, would totally recommend!

    Great stay at this hotel, I particularly enjoyed the service given by the staff at Destino Sur. Lovely people who gave us lots of pieces of advice on how to visit the town of El Chaltén and other suggestions regarding the hikes. The receptionists were very helpful and polite, thank you!

    Great stay in El Chalten

    The staff goes above and beyond, so sweet! Helped us with any request and knowledgable. Their day trip meals are surprisingly good with good value for money. Spa is great after a long day out. It’s probably the best, or at least one of the best places in the area

    Great place to relax after arduous but scenic trek

    Great place to stay with helpul staff. Only down side was that they do not have bath robes in the bedrooms, which is inconvenient going to and frm the swimming pool. Paying over $300 aud a night you would expect them!

    Delightful stay in a charming town

    We had a great stay at Destino Sur. The room and bathroom was spacious enough, we especially liked the hot shower which had good water pressure. Only thing is the rooms are too warm for our liking... we had to keep the window open the whole time but overall great rooms. The spa was also nice to have after a day of hiking. The breakfast was ok, however we very much enjoyed the restaurant for dinner. All of the staff was so friendly, kind, and helpful. The hotel is also a great location to trailheads and still close to all restaurants and other places. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.
